        Autograph Letter, signed, to "Ethel" [Hatch]

      "Christ Church", [Oxford], jan.30/'84 [1884] - A touching letter. Ethel being almost certainly one of Dodgson's favorite 'child-friends', Ethel Hatch: "My dear Ethel, "I think it will have to be YOU that settles the 'which' as to the new book: but the 'when' is quite another matter. It is quite a High School sort of question - 'If anticipation gives happiness, what will 40 years of anticipation give?" ANS: '40 years of happiness!' My only fear is that is would be too much happiness for you. Still, I know you are a VERY good girl (at least, all the people who live in Canterbury Row, & in that neighbourhood, have never told me anything to the contrary), so I say to myself 'Yes! She DOES deserve it. She shall have 40 years of happiness!' "Give B [eatrice Hatch] my love, & thanks for her letter: & as she now does a 'different sort' of work from the High School, I send her a question to work out; the like of which was NEVER set there. 'If it is odd to have an undergraduate brother, what is it to have two?' ANSWER: 'Even.' "Please think of me in the year 1924 A.D. and believe me, "Yours always affectionately "CLD" 12mo. 4pp. in Dodgson's purple ink. Fine. In quarter purple morocco and cloth drop case with descriptive lettering in gilt on upper cover. Cohen, p. 527 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Study of Maid's drapery for his painting "King Cophetua and the Beggar Maid.

      n.p., ca. 1884 - Edward Coley Burne-Jones (1833-1898), was "The most important artist in the later phase of the Pre-Raphaelite movement and a figure of enormous influence at home and abroad" (Christian). He was born in Birmingham, the son of a frame-maker; originally planning for a career in the Church, at Oxford "he and his friend William Morris came under the influence of Ruskin and the Pre-Raphaelites, and decided to devote themselves to art". Burne-Jones embarked on a distinguished career. For many years he seldom exhibited, relying on the support of devoted patrons, but in 1877 he began exhibiting at London's Grosvenor Gallery; his large paintings "caused a sensation, revealing him as the 'star' of the Grosvenor, a key figure in the Aesthetic Movement, and one of the leading artists of the day . the [peak] of his later career [was] the exhibition of King Cophetua and the Beggar Maid at the Grosvenor in 1884 . " During the 1890s he enjoyed an international reputation, "being especially fashionable in Symbolist circles in Paris, where King Cophetua was received with great acclaim at the Exposition Universelle of 1889". He was created a baronet by Queen Victoria in 1894 Initially exhibited at the Grosvenor Gallery, 1884. Image 13-1/4 x 9-1/4 inches, matted, framed and glazed to 22 x 17-1/2 inches overall.

        Reflections in Palestine, 1883.

      London, Macmillan 1884 - Duodecimo. Pp. x, (2), 124. Plus 3 lithograph maps on 2 plates, printed in black with additional colour by hand. Sketch illustrations to text. Hardcover, original grey cloth, bit discoloured and marked, printed and decorated in red and black. Chalked forest-green endpapers (bookplate removed from front paste-down), first inner hinge mended. In a very good condition, fine interior, crisp maps. ~ First edition. British army General Charles George Gordon (1833-85), popularly known as "Chinese Gordon", served in the Crimean War and in the 1860 expedition to China, where he took part in the capture of Beijing and later commanded the Chinese force against the Taiping Rebellion. Appointed governour of Sudan in 1877, he waged a vigorous campaign against slave traders. He resigned in 1879, and in 1883 travelled to the Holy Land where he remained for a year, devoting his time to the study of Biblical history and of the antiquities of Jerusalem. In 1884 he was called back to service and was sent to the Sudan to defeat the Mahdi. During the campaign he was cut-off and besieged at Khartoum for 10 months. A relief expedition, belatedly dispatched from England, reached the garrison two days after it had been stormed by the Mahdists, who killed Gordon. Gordon's death stirred public indignation and contributed to the collapse of the Gladstone government in 1885. "Reflections in Palestine" is based on Gordon's observations during his year-long visit to the Holy Land. It was published by his friends while he was posted in Khartoum, shortly before his death. The book is divided into Topographical and Religious sections. In the first, Gordon describes in detail the topography and architecture of some of the major holy places he had visited, while the second part is dedicated to the religious contemplations these places has aroused in him. Lytton Strachey, in "Eminent Victorians" (1918), writes this wonderful memoir of Gordon: "During the year 1883, a solitary English gentleman was to be seen, wandering, with a thick book under his arm, in the neighbourhood of Jerusalem. To the friendly inquirer, he would explain that he was engaged in elucidating four questions: the site of the crucifixion; the line of division between the tribes of Benjamin and Judah; the identification of Gibeon; and the position of the Garden of Eden. He was also, he would add, most anxious to discover the spot where the Ark first touched ground, after the subsidence of the Flood: he believed, indeed, that he had solved that problem, as a reference to some passages in the book which he was carrying would show."

His intense religious devotion comes through powerfully in this letter to his Aunt Amy penned from Khartoum. Lytton Strachey in ?Eminent Victorians? (London: Chatto & Windus, 1918) writes that at Pembroke, where [Gordon] was sent to work at the erection of fortifications, ?those religious convictions, which never afterwards left him, first gained a hold upon his mind. Under the influence of his sister Augusta and of a ?very religious captain of the name of Drew?, he began to reflect upon his sins, look up texts, and hope for salvation. Though he had never been confirmed ... he took the sacrament every Sunday.? From, ?Gordon was first posted to the Engineers d

        [Six Original Drawings]: Four sheets of Anatomical Drawings depicting the bones and muscles of the Arm and Shoulder (Skelett des gestreckten Armes; Muskeln des gestreckten Armes; Skelett des gebeugten Armes; Schulterblatt mit Schlusselbeinverbindung), and two sheets of Anatomical and Physiognomical Drawings of the Head and Face

      [Germany]. (1884-1885). Four sepia and two black and white ink drawings on thick paper sheets (measuring about 14" x 11"). The four sheets of sepia drawings have manuscript titles and descriptions in German, including one sheet initialed and dated by the artist (1884). The other two sheets of ink drawings are signed and dated: "C. Philipp" (1885). All six appear to be by the same artist, and are drawn on the same thick gray paper sheets. The sheets are hand-cut, with a few small tears at the corners, very good. The four sheets of sepia drawings consists of 12 anatomical drawings: eight representing the skeleton and muscles of an extended and a flexed arm, and four representing the scapula and clavicle. All 12 have the various bones and muscles numbered and identified in manuscript. The two sheets of pen & ink drawings consists of 14 individual representations of the head and face (depicting the skull, muscles, and fully fleshed faces), and 29 representations of fully fleshed faces: these being a series of physiognomic studies based on Johann Kaspar Lavater&#39;s famous Physiognomische. The anatomical drawings of the arm and shoulder may have been intended for Christoph Roth&#39;s Plastisch-Anatomischer Atlas (issued in several editions from 1870-1892), which prints chapter titles identical to those used for the drawings. However, it appears most likely that this set of drawings was not published. A remarkable suite of highly accomplished and detailed anatomical studies. .

Pictorial red cloth printed in black and gilt, a splendid just about fine copy in a bright, unblemished binding showing no rubbing or wear.

The lower outer corner of the verso of the frontispiece shows a grayish portion of the frontispiece image, a printer's error of some sort (hard to describe; we could take pictures for interested parties).
